Imran, Qadri demands unconstitutional: LHC
LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has issued its detailed order pertaining to the Azadi March, Inquilab March and sit-in in Islamabad.

The three-member full bench in its nine page order stated that demands made by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri were unconstitutional.

The LHC order states that protesting workers and their leaders will face litigation for violation of the constitution.

The court observed that Imran Khan in an interview had said that a commission headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan be formed to probe rigging allegations and in this case he would withdraw the call for the long march. The LHC order stated that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had announced that the government would approach the Supreme Court for the formation of a judicial commission to probe the allegations, but Imran Khan dismissed this.

The court has accepted the petitions for hearing and proceedings of the case will be held in the second week of September. Replies have also been summoned from the PTI and PAT.
